T.E.R.R.Y.PRINT THIS PAGE
Some people would call our time the hour of brutal relationships, a natural struggle for survival turned today into a determination without rules; a myth of success where everything else is easily justified as side effect.
It is quite common today – since Lehman brothers onward – to see it as what brought us where we are, but – come on –, we don't have to be so severe: don’t forget is the way through which we all consciously built everything we have.
Starting from three different autonomous installations – three experiments on careerism in electronic circuits, in botanical gardens and children’s game rules – T.E.R.R.Y. builds a performance of visual theatre where an inanimate and vegetal image traces the endless human nuances of a tension between competition and functional cooperation. It is the invention of a scientific system in which the mechanical rules are able to speak about dynamics that belong to us, and in which the presence and movement of the human body can interact to lastly question the viewer’s sight.
In a season where people do nothing but talk to imagine another possible world, we wondered if we would really be able to renounce to the current one. And maybe, before asking ourselves to imagine another possible world, we shall simply ask whether it is really possible to imagine it.
